Green caught seven of 12 targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Steelers.
Green led his team in receiving yards but was outplayed by teammate Tyler Boyd (seven catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns). The two productive wideouts have coexisted well thus far, and that should be the case again in Week 7 against a porous Chiefs secondary.
Green caught six of 10 targets for 112 yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Dolphins.
Green reestablished himself as the Bengals' go-to aerial option, topping 100 receiving yards for the first time this season while no teammate even reached 50. With 409 yards and five touchdowns through five weeks, Green has once again been one of the league's most productive wide receivers heading into a Week 6 home tilt against the Steelers.
Green caught four of eight targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-36 thriller over the Falcons.
Cincinnati held a 28-27 halftime lead, so it was disappointing to see Green with just two catches for 49 yards at the break. Green had a would-be touchdown called back on a penalty in the fourth quarter, but he didn't let that get him down and made the game's most important play by catching a 13-yard score with seven seconds remaining. Tyler Boyd had 15 targets to Green's eight, so Green's standing as the clear-cut top option in Cincinnati's passing game could be in question against the Dolphins in Week 5.
Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis relayed Wednesday that Green (groin/hip) is feeling "fine," Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. "He seemed to come around very quickly with the anti-inflammatories," Lewis said, regarding the wideout's recovery from injury. "We're very fortunate with that. Because I didn't know what he had injured. He was complaining about both sides."
Green's departure in Sunday's loss to the Panthers was previously attributed solely to a groin injury, but both of the wideouts hips were evidently aching as well. He also landed awkwardly on his shoulder during the contest, putting his health on shaky ground entering Week 4. While Green seems to be quite banged up, Lewis remains optimistic about the 30-year-old's outlook for this weekend's tilt against the Falcons, per Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Green hauled in four of five targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-13 preseason win over Buffalo.
Green and quarterback Andy Dalton displayed their usual rapport, as the veteran receiver consistently got himself open and scored from 14 yards out. The seven-time Pro Bowler is unlikely to play in Week 4 of preseason, so the next time we see Green should be in the Sept. 9 season opener at Indianapolis.
